LEGO Serious Play facilitation supports open communication, inhibits unproductive hierarchies and generates creativity through storytelling and building with bricks. It has been used by hundreds of large and small organisations to achieve successful outcomes.

How does it work?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is an open-source facilitation process developed by the LEGO group that builds on extensive research and application in organisations from the NHS to NASA. The process draws on individual and organisational theories of learning to enable engagement and reflection. Exposing existing knowledge and capabilities in a fun and engaging way, workshops using this methodology can support new knowledge development, improved work performance and innovation. More detail on the method is provided by LEGO here.

A great introduction to the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and materials is given in this detailed video by Marko Rillo, one of the authors of Serious Work. This video outlines the process activated in LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops whereby playfulness can lead to better solutions, strategy and innovation. If you have some lego bricks to hand you can even build along!
